The Earth & Environmental Sciences Department is home to two student clubs and hosts a chapter of Sigma Gamma Epsilon, the national honor society for the geosciences (Eta Upsilon Chapter). But our students are active off campus as well, and we offer plenty of opportunities to explore geology and environmental science first-hand, in the field. In addition to regional field trips in the geologically diverse state of California, students have had the opportunity to participate in some incredible geological spring break field trips—to Hawaii, Chile, and other destinations.
We are proud of our students' many accomplishments and awards. Each year we honor a few of our truly exceptional graduating seniors with the Outstanding Graduate award. These are students who have not only earned a consistently high academic record, but who have also been actively involved in our discipline through activities, research, and special projects. On our Alumni page, you will learn about the career paths a few of our alumni have taken, and find out how the Earth & Environmental Sciences program prepared them for their next steps.
